Multiple Launch Rocket System 

In Combat situations, GMLRS is now the weapon of choice.  The GMLRS provides the Army with huge amounts of firepower. Launchers operate from concealed hides, fire their rockets and then relocate before the enemy can find them. In combat situations, guided rockets are being used to hit precision targets while safeguarding friendly forces and the local population.


We are based in Newcastle, Tyne and Wear, our address is Albemarle Barracks, Harlow Hill, NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE, Tyne and Wear, NE15 0RF.
